    Jason, sent you a PM, perhaps we can carpool somewhere.

    I've noticed a slow down in fishing off a beach in Area 10 I've visited nearly 10 times in the last two weeks, although there are some BIG fish jumping around. Fewer takes and no fish to hand in the last 4 trips, but I'm not giving up!

    I noticed that too! She was smiling because she was SO close to escaping. She was barely hooked and the lip tore as I pulled her ashore. Myself and a gear fisherman were able to catch her at the last second!

    I've noticed the same thing in MA-9. For sure less fish, but the ones left seem bigger. Lately there's been a fraction of the fish caught that there was 2-4 weeks ago.
